Vanguard – Pilates Program

What is Pilates?

Pilates is an exercise system created by Joseph Pilates and his wife Clara. Classical Pilates consists of a progression of movements completed in small repetitions. These smooth movements elongate and strengthen muscles. The “powerhouse,” abdominal/core, is utilized and provides strengthening and stabilization benefits to improve quality of life and function.

Pilates Principles & History

6 Principles

  • Flow/efficiency of movement
  • Precision
  • Breath
  • Centering/stabilization
  • Control
  • Concentration

The creator of Pilates, Joseph Pilates, originally termed this method of training as “Contrology.” He described “Contrology” as complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit. Through practice of this flowing style, each individual’s body in time will be freed from compensatory weakness that contribute to chronic injuries. However, this freedom from weakness and injury can only be achieved through mindful control over muscles.
